From your Acute Injury, to Post Surgery Rehab, to Work conditioning and Return to Work; we are here to care for you and guide you on your journey back to the Workforce as quickly as possible. Our staff is trained to work with you, your company and human resources, your doctors and the insurance company representatives on a regular basis. Getting you back to your life with minimal pain and maximal function and strength is our primary goal.
- Convenient, prompt scheduling; evening hours are one of our most popular requests
- Work related Injuries need special attention, such as determining how the injury occurred, and whether it occurred while at work or as a result of work.
- Our thorough initial questionnaire and assessment provides the best information for our clients to use to understand their injury and treatment plan. It is the best way to set goals to resolve their injury so that they can return to modified duty as soon as possible and full duty as soon as they are safe to do so. Job site assessments are available if needed. Job descriptions give the therapist a proper idea of what the patient needs to be able to perform to go back to work safely.
- A comprehensive and complete rehab program from low level activity and pain reduction using multiple modality interventions, hands on techniques to range of motion and strengthening and on to work conditioning for the total body is our strategy for each of our work injury clients.
- Patient education regarding the injury and how it affects the rest of their body is vital to each person so that they can move forward fast enough but not too fast, avoid re-injury or even need to have a surgery redone. Understanding the healing process and following the surgeons’ protocols after a surgery is key to successful recovery.
- Understanding how to use proper ergonomics and use of their body at their workstation enables them to find their own way of preventing a future injury and reduce poor posture related pain.
- Close coordination and communication with the patient, therapist, physician, human resources at the company, nurse case manager for the insurance company and 3rd party managers are utilized. This enables us to get our patients the care that is necessary to get them back to their previous level of function.
